Our Featured Researchers
Jason Sicklick, MD
Dr. Jason Sicklick, MD (Principal Investigator) is an Associate Professor of Surgery and Surgical Oncology at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center. His lab uses cells lines, as well as transgenic and xenograft models of GIST to understand the biology of the disease and to test novel approaches to overcome drug-resistance. Dr. Sicklick will be responsible for the overall experimental activity of the SDH-deficient GIST study and will oversee communication of the research team. He will supervise all aspects of the proposed research, including data analysis and interpretation.
Arthur S. Tischler, MD
Dr. Arthur Tischler is a professor of pathology at Tufts University School of Medicine and senior pathologist at Tufts Medical Center, specializing in endocrine pathology. His particular clinical and research interests combine surgical pathology of pheochromocytomas and extra-adrenal paragangliomas, with cellular and molecular studies aimed at determining mechanisms that regulate tumor development and phenotype. He served as president of the Endocrine Pathology Society from 2001-2002 and editor-in-chief of the Journal Endocrine Pathology from 2002-2008. He was a founding member of the international pheochromocytoma research consortium, PRESSOR, and currently co-chairs the PRESSOR Tumor Models working group.
Dr. Joshua Schiffman
SDH Researcher at Huntsman in Utah. He is creating studying SDH cancers and would appreciate anyone having surgery getting in touch with his lab to help establish
an SDH cancer cell line. He is also studying the inherited qualities to these germline mutations.
